Align your business with the IIA Audit Maturity Model and Ideagen Pentana Audit
Audit Maturity: Initial Stage
At the Initial stage of Audit Maturity, audit teams struggle with:
- policies and methodologies that are not defined or in place
- incompatible resources
- skills and credentials with no facility for training
- a high reliance on manual systems and spreadsheets
- a lack of quality, with reporting and communication performed completely ad hoc.
Audit Maturity: Repeatable Stage
At the Repeatable stage of Audit Maturity, audit teams will have a moderate system in place with defined policies, training, reporting, communication and methodology. But they still lack the necessary documentation for these processes.
The information relied upon is not generated from within the system, and skills and credentials of the team meet the minimum satisfactory requirement.
Audit Maturity: Defined Stage
At the Defined stage of Audit Maturity, all policies, methodologies, communication and reporting processes are defined, in place and documented in a stable, central system.
The right skills and credentials are in place, with training requirements carried out efficiently.
With Ideagen Ideagen Pentana Audit's intuitive workflows, quality control measures and central repository for all relevant documentation, your audits can easily meet the requirements for the Defined stage.
Audit Maturity: Managed Stage
At the Managed stage of Audit Maturity, audit processes are highly effective, with automated reports, continuous monitoring, and clear communication.
Data integrity is high, and key metrics such as quality and timeliness are defined and monitored to ensure continuous improvement.
Pentana Audit uses powerful features to ensure processes are extremely effective, such as automatic report generation, detailed issue tracking and action management, and an adaptable library of objectives, risks, controls and tests to ensure you achieve the Managed stage comfortably.
Audit Maturity: Optimised Stage
At the Optimised stage of Audit Maturity, audit teams benefit from having:
- continuous audit and monitoring processes
- reliable data analytics able to demonstrate a high level of quality
- a dynamic approach to emerging leading practices.
There is a focus on performance, where compliance issues are dealt with as a matter of course.
Ideagen Ideagen Pentana Audit is fully risk-based, meaning that the system is always optimised for continual monitoring and improvement. Dynamic performance dashboards and reports can be created for real-time analysis of all key Audit metrics, bringing your organisation in line with the Optimised stage.
